Robinson Speaks at CLM’s Annual Conference


Tyler Robinson represented Heyl Royster on a panel discussion at the Claims and Litigation Management Alliance’s (CLM) 2019 Annual Conference in Orlando, Florida. The panel included Jim LeBlanc, VP and Director of Claims Operations at BerkleyMed, Tom Dawson, CEO of TD&P Consulting, Inc., and Tom Geroulo from Bardlsey Benedict + Cholden, LLP. Their topic was titled “Overcoming Sticker Prices: The Emergence of the Reasonable Value Approach.” This roundtable discussion focused on a dynamic market value damage rebuttal approach - the reasonable value approach. The panel explored the economic and healthcare policy underpinnings of the approach as well as identified practical tools necessary to develop a market rate estimate to rebut sticker prices that are fiction and are totally unmoored from the reality of arm’s length transactions actually taking place within the healthcare marketplace.

With an extensive healthcare background, Tyler brings a unique approach when defending high-end damages in catastrophic cases. Over the last several years, Tyler has successfully overcome collateral source rule objections, developed damage rebuttal theories consistent with existing Illinois law, and his efforts have enabled his clients to save millions of dollars.
